OnboardMV Explorer comes complete with a full-service spa, a pool and sun deck, a theater-style lounge, men's and women's saunas, a library, computer lab and several classrooms. There is one main dining venue and a snack bar poolside.
Most of the ship activities take place in the many classrooms and labs located throughout the vessel, with programs as diverse as Oceanography and Marine Life, Spanish Lessons and Caribbean Rhythms and Music. The ship's library is 8,000 volumes strong. Enrichment Voyages not only offers free Internet to guests onboard, but free Wi-Fi throughout the ship as well.
Despite the emphasis on enrichment and educational voyages, passengers can also take part in more traditional cruise offerings such as bingo, talent shows in the lounge, and Pilates, yoga, aerobics and weight-training in the fitness center.
Although there are eight suites with verandas, 12 without, and 30 "junior suites," the remaining inside and outside staterooms average just 140 square ft., small for a ship that is not a classic.
Breakfast and lunch are served buffet-style; supper is usually open seating and casual. At least twice per voyage there will be a semi-formal captain's dinner, and on many nights a specialty dining option with gourmet fare will be offered for a nominal charge.
